Oncotarget: a treasure of research knowledge on Oncology

The arena of oncology is one of the most sought after topics in the field of modern medicine and research. Some universities and research institutes are now running oncology research on a larger scale and developing a pool research data and findings on Oncology, the study related to cancer.

Oncotarget is considered as one of the most popular and useful journals on oncology. It is a weekly journal which is reviewed by peers. It provides open access to medical journals that focuses on research on every aspect of oncology. In addition to oncology, it also has a huge collection of research data on other topics as well. This journal was published in 2010 by Impact Journals. They publish their articles online, and most of their issues can be published on paper if requested.

Within five years, it achieved an impact score 5.008 that is quite remarkable for a journal. It is abstracted and indexed in a number of prominent sources such as Index Medicus/MEDLINE/PubMed, BIOSIS Previews, the Science Citation Index Expanded, and Scopus. Mikhail Blagosklonny and Andrei V. Gudkov from Roswell Park Cancer Institute are now serving as the editors in chief of this journal
